in his manifesto, Mr Lister, who farms in Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire, said: “The pig industry continues to have an array of challenges which I believe the National Pig Association has met with skill, passion and intelligence.”
In the context of the challenges the industry, Mr Longthorp, also from Yorkshire, said: “NPA will need a Producer Group and Executive that continues to develop forward-looking strategy and execute prompt and effective action.”
Mr Crabtree, a director of Farmex, said: “The industry needs a strong voice and NPA’s unique qualification is to represent all stakeholders to market.”
